I’ve been lucky enough to provide portraits for expectant moms, tiny little newborns, families, kids, pets… it seems like I’ve had so many different opportunities in 2013. To start my new (hopefully very regular) blogging, I’ve compiled some of my favourite images from the last year. It’s been a wonderful, crazy year for Radtke’s Roost Photography, and I hope the trend continues!
I’ve even been lucky enough to photograph my first (solo) wedding. I have done some 2nd shooting for other photographers, but was actually asked to shoot a wedding myself at the beginning of this year. Although a very stressful, hectic experience, I wouldn’t change it for the world!! I learned SO MUCH from just that one wedding, it shaped changes throughout my whole business!
I have been ever so fortunate to have been selected as the photographer for several expectant moms this year. Not only did I get to experience that wonderful maternity feeling (without the swollen ankles or food cravings!), I’ve been able to watch their children grow up! The sessions with those moms, and then with their babies, will always have a special little place in my heart!
This year I started photographing my daughter in her dance costumes (she dances competitively), in more stylized studio sessions. I had such gorgeous photos turn out, that some of her dance classmates commissioned me to do their photos as well. I have to admit, I have this special little feeling, this crazy pride, in these athletic and talented girls! I adore these sessions, and can’t wait to look back in a few years to compare their ‘then’ and ‘now’ photos!
Please feel free to check through my website and facebook pages and leave me a comment on your favourite photos this year!
